Irish bluegrass affeniato Niall Toner, mandolin and guitar player with the Niall Toner Band, interviewed Bela Fleck during a recent trip the banjo player took to Ireland. The interview is set to be broadcast on RTE Radio 1, on which Niall regularly hosts a show.
The show containing this interview will be broadcast on May 3rd at 9 PM. I’m assuming that is local time in Ireland which is five hours ahead of EST in the US so that would place the show time at 4PM EST. I’m told the show will be available for online listening.
What did Niall and Bela talk about in the interview?
all aspects of the 5-string banjo, including his ventures into jazz, blues, and classical music, as well as his ongoing contribution to bluegrass.
This particular program is not part of Naill’s normal weekly show, but instead is a special. The first of many he hopes to broadcast.
